Alleged bank robber charged in three robberies

GEORGETOWN, TEXAS - Police in three Williamson County jurisdictions believe the one man is responsible for three bank robberies there in the last 10 days.

Georgetown, Leander and Round Rock Police Departments have all charged Alan David Hejl, 46, of Killeen in connections to robberies on Oct. 24 and Nov. 1.

Georgetown police allege Hejl robbed the Capital One Bank along West University Avenue the morning of Nov. 1. During the robbery, the robber was wearing the blonde wig and did not show a weapon. Round Rock police said they responded to a robbery at the Citizens National Bank along West Palm Valley Boulevard around 11 a.m. Nov. 1. The robber demanded money from a teller and fled on foot, police said.

Hejl then allegedly got into a 2003 Ford Taurus parked in the church parking lot behind the bank and drove south on Mays Street. RRPD said a witness in the parking lot followed Hejl and called 911, and officers were able to take him into custody without incident in a parking lot outside Dell Computers. 

Leander police said on Facebook Wednesday evening that during an interview with investigators Hejl confessed to the two robberies and the robbery of the Compass Bank in Leander on Oct. 24.

Hejl was booked into the Williamson County Jail on Tuesday. Online records show he is facing three robbery charges, one charge of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle and a parole violation charge. Bond is set at a combined $1.45 million.
